IBDV protein that dampens poultry immune response could inform vaccine development

By |2020-07-23T17:32:13+00:00July 23rd, 2020|

Work carried out by scientists at The Pirbright Institute has revealed that differences in virulence between strains of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) may be partly down to changes in a viral protein called VP4. Their findings could help us to understand why very virulent (vv) strains cause high mortality rates in some commercial poultry flocks and [...]

Sensitization against skin resident fungi is associated with atopy in cholinergic urticaria patients

By |2020-07-23T17:32:11+00:00July 23rd, 2020|

Abstract Background Cholinergic urticaria (CholU) is a common type of chronic inducible urticaria, characterized by small itchy wheals that appear upon physical exercise or passive warming.

Expression of SARS-CoV-2 Receptor ACE2 and Coincident Host Response Signature Varies by Asthma Inflammatory Phenotype

By |2020-07-23T17:32:09+00:00July 23rd, 2020|

Abstract Background Over 300 million people carry a diagnosis of asthma with data to suggest they are at higher risk for infection or adverse outcomes from SARS-CoV-2. Asthma is remarkably heterogenous and it is currently unclear how patient intrinsic factors may relate to COVID-19. Objective Identify and characterize subsets of asthmatics at increased risk for [...]
